COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This West Coast IPA is like that sweet little Nordic trail off the main trail of Meissner - it takes the high road. Using Pilsner base malt, it is light on malt but not hops. With a hop bill consisting of Amarillo, Centennial, Northern Brewer, and experimental hop X, we packed in the pine along with the citrus notes we love.

Cloudy golden color. Big piny vegetal hop aroma. A little malt in the flavor but the hops are big and bitter. Nice beer but a little on the bitter piny side for me.

Pint poured from a growler filled at Growl Movement in Salem. $12 Clear gold ale with a large and frothy dirty white head. Nice strong citrus, r esiny hop with a hint of hay like malts. Really startling taste..its like a good bohemian pilsner crossed with a citrus hop bomb..cool. Nice medium mouth feel.. Very nice IPL/A..very drinkable.

vyvvy (4470) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2015
On tap at the Portland brewpub - Pours clear gold with a white head. The aroma has pine, grapefruit and caramel with a great balance between everything. It is medium bodied with mild carbonation. The flavor starts very piney / woody with some grapefruit zest and decent amount of mildly toasted malt that offsets the hoppiness. The finish is resiny and bitter. Quite good.

Tap at Deschutes Brewery & Public House (Portland). Sharp piney hop aroma, with a severely fresh fruitiness. Bright orange/straw color. Light maltiness and tingling piney hop, a bit spicy. Thin-medium body, nice clean crisp mouthfeel. Great balance.

trevor211 (1392) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2015
On tap at Beer Junction. Light golden pour, sharply bitter. This one is appropriately named. More pine resin than fruit or floral notes, with a good medium body. I like it.

uhclem (381) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2014
On tap at Old Chicago. There’s very little to be done to improve this IPA. I did something I normally don’t do - I had a second one. A perfect combination of aroma and taste, with a lingering finish. Too bad it’s a seasonal.

kevinator (1143) - The Colony, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Nice pine and citrus aroma. Soft caramel color. Relatively light palate with high carbination. Flavor was bitter with a sweetness to follow. Good IPA to fall in line with the others for this brewery.
